Oh I Would Make Einstein Jealous With My Brilliance

Back from camping! While I had fun and it was good to get out of town for a couple of days, being the genius that I am, I did make three fairly significant mistakes pertaining to my trip.
Numero uno: I forgot my camera. Seriously. What kind of a blogger forgets to bring their camera on their only trip of the summer?! I realized it when we were driving through San Francisco, and couldn't justify driving the hour and a half back home to get it. Dang!
Numero dos: Our plan was to go to the Russian River, but I somehow booked our campsite in Cloverdale, where apparently the river doesn't really make a huge appearance! We did drive to Healdsburg our second day, where we found the river, but our campsite in Cloverdale was in the middle of nowhere. Well, it was near a tiny duck pond but no river! Doh!
Numero tres: When we found the river, we ended up taking an 8 mile kayak trip. It was super cool, and the company allows dogs to go in the inflatable kayaks. My mom was in charge of keeping the dogs in the kayak, which meant that I was on row duty! The mistake was made in that I put sunscreen everywhere but the tops of my legs and my stomach! Now I look like a lobster... and I am ridiculously sore! Ouch!

Anyhoo... here's what I wore to work tonight. I thought I'd try this new one-feather-earring trend, and I'm not gonna lie, I'm liking it! :)
Blouse: Forever 21 (thrifted $10) Jeans: American Rag ($25 from Macy's) Sandals: Roxy ($15 from Macy's) Belt (thrifted $8) Earring: Feather from an American Rag vest put on a small hoop (creative, eh?)
Now I'm tired from a busy night at work, so goodnight to one and all!


  1. haha I love your title! and your toe nails are funky (in a good way) xx

  2. I love the feather earring and, as usual, your multi-coloured toenails!

    And your story is hilarious! Better luck next time! I spent much of my weekend in a temper because the batteries of ALL THREE cameras that we took were dying throughout the weekend. I got pretty immature about it at one point. ; )

  3. I'm not alone after all! I went on this crazy trip to Nashville yesterday, lugged around my camra, and when I went to take pictures... I'd left the memory card at home!

    You look so beautiful as always! Your skin is flawless! And I'm loving your toenails! :)
